How to Change Bluehost Nameservers

In this Knowledge Base article, we will cover how to change Bluehost nameservers of your domain to web host nameservers.

Why You Should Change Bluehost Nameservers

The DNS service you use for your domain can have a significant impact on the TTFB performance of your website. Using a highly scalable and available DNS service ensures high performance all around the world. All ChemiCloud plans include a premium DNS service.

Typically, domain registrars do not provide customers with a premium DNS service like ChemiCloud DNS. For this reason, we recommend switching nameservers to ours if your domain is registered with Bluehost and you are hosting your website with us.

What Are My ChemiCloud Nameservers?

You can find your ChemiCloud nameservers by clicking on the Server Information icon inside the ChemiCloud dashboard.

To learn more, we published an easy guide explaining how to locate your Nameservers inside of the Client Area here.

How to Change Bluehost Nameservers

Step 1: Log in to your Bluehost account. You can open up the login page directly by clicking here.

Step 2: Once you are logged in, ensure you are in the My Domains area. You will see a list of domain names registered to you at Bluehost. Click Manage next to the domain for which you want to change nameservers.

Step 3: When the domain management screen opens, click the DNS tab to open the DNS settings.

Step 4: Click the Edit button in the top right of the Name Servers section to edit the nameservers. Choose “Custom” next to Setup Type.

Under Name Server 1 and Name Server 2, enter your ChemiCloud Name Servers. To add the third nameserver, click the + Add Name Server button, then enter the third nameserver.

Finally, click Save to save your changes.

Your completed Name Servers area should look similar to the one below:

Click save to save your changes. That’s it! Your changes will now propagate.

Important Information About Changing Nameservers:

Nameserver changes are not instant. They require up to 24 hours to propagate globally. There are a lot of DNS servers to update with this new information, so definitely allow time for this information to propagate successfully.

Transfer Your Domain To ChemiCloud

There is no need to juggle separate providers, contacts, and services when you can have everything you need, all in one place.

If you’d like to manage your nameservers and your hosting in the same place, here at ChemiCloud, you should consider transferring your domain(s) from Bluehost to ChemiCloud.

We’ve put together a great Knowledge Base article on how to do that.
